This brief 15 (not 10, as posted on the page) minute episode is clearly a nod to I, Mudd in TOS, an episode that featured advanced robots long before Data and Lore, although it takes the premise in a very different direction. This Mudd is also far more entertaining than the original Mudd. If Bugs Bunny had a chaotic evil twin in space, it would probably be this version of Mudd. The incessant trouble-making and pleading when caught, the unusual ways of taking revenge--somehow it all works.
This is the fun, rather than the deep side of Star Trek, but it still manages to play with some tropes along the way. Worth the watch for anyone who likes the series.
